One of the highlights while visiting Easter Island. The ocean and the sun make this place even nicer when it is visited in the right moment.

It’s very impressive. Also for sunrise. Best daytime visit in the afternoon. The ocean with is blue waters and the craters make it even better.

One of the best sunrises that i've ever seen! Espetacular, i loved, in the winter, you have to go about 7 ou 7:30 am, because the sun appears about 8 o'clock. If you do not get the sun, it totally worth come back another day.

This is the place that is recommended for a sunrise spectacular, ideally with the sun rising behind the Moai. Of course that is only relevant during a small portion of the year, since all the Moai face towards sunset during the summer solstice. Never-the-less, with...More
